PSA (transphobia meta), please boost 

for the past ~4 days there's been lots of mass harassment of trans people

if you're an instance admin:
- please turn off sign ups, at least until this is over
- keep up with

if you're on the list, or just worried:
- lock your account
- in web mastodon:
- preferences -> appearance -> always hide media
- preferences -> notifications -> block DMs from people you don't follow
- in tusky:
- account prefs -> download media previews -> off

I think that eventually, they're going to either give up or find new ways to get the harassment through. If you already have DMs from non-following and media previews hidden + locked account, there's only a few ways for them to get through, and for us to be safe from that:

- only accept follow requests from people with non-empty profiles
- temporarily remove anything from your bio that might lead them to other possible ways of harassing you (links, etc)

@AgathaSorceress also consider:

preferences -> other -> "Opt-out of search engine indexing" and "Hide your social graph"

@AgathaSorceress

In fact, the filtering part only hide the stats of posts. It main goals seems to hide posts popularity. Not related at all to your privacy !

re: PSA (transphobia meta), please boost 

@stacyharper @AgathaSorceress if you run your own instance then MRF can do a lot of blacklisting and can strip media and the like. I鈥檝e not been using pleroma for over a year now so I can鈥檛 give details on how anymore

re: PSA (transphobia meta), please boost 

@rachel @AgathaSorceress nah I dont own the instance but I'm sure my admins does everything they can :D My report should be enough I hope

re: PSA (transphobia meta), please boost 

@rachel @AgathaSorceress MRF are know spam lists ?

Also, if you get harassed:

- report the user. make sure you include the post in the report and forward the report to the other instance
- report the instance to @fediblock. We'll check if the mods of the instance block the harasser or are fine with it and in the later case put the instance on the #FediBlock blocklist: rathersafe.space/fediblock

@AgathaSorceress I'm not a very active fediverse user, so I wasn't even aware this was happening. Thank you for the info!
